What People are Saying
Been there several times, fast service and the food has been amazing. if you're like me and just like good old faves, try their mince on toast, it was yummy.
One of my favorite meeting places! Super convenient, abundant parking and friendly staff! They always remember my name and it makes me wonder how they do that with all the different customers coming through!
Great place for coffee and a bite, wide range of muffins and the date scone I had was amazing. The service was friendly and quick and the place was very clean.
I've been to The Raft several times and have always had a good experience. Great & friendly staff. Always lovely food, and great drinks.

The Raft has been our local since they opened several years back, we enjoy the consistency of great coffees, friendly service and more often than not promptness, unless there is a house full then this is to be expected. Keep doing what you're doing gang, you rock!
Yummm food. Nice cold beer. Exactly what was needed at the time. If I lived closer I would visit more often.
